Hi all, I don't think I've written a post for a few years so thought I would now after reading so many of all of urs, you have inspired me to speak up.
27th January this year was 10 years since I suffered my BI through a sever car accident, for the last 8years I have been thinking how I could mark the occasion and give people who know me another reason to remember the crash and a happier reason, so I decided to shave my head ( on top of my shoulders ) lol.
I decided to to this for many reasons:-
1, to show other BI survivors that there is no need to be ashamed of their injury,
2, to show the outsiders ( non bi survivors ) that I am happy with who I am and what I've become, hair or no hair,
3, to raise vital funds for my headway branch ( Headway Merthyr Tydfil ) and finally
4, that everyone has the same shaped scull BI'd or not.
After 5 months of collecting the sponsorship and what the lovely kindest people I know donated I raised a staggering £1.351.17p 😀 I was so over whelmed with the amount as my target was only £1000.
I hope my little story here goes to show each and every one of you, it doesn't matter where you are in your recovery you will get to where you want to be and also to be happy with who you have changed into.
Lots of love, wishes, kisses and cwtches for each and every one of you.
